The Forest of Difficulty

I was lost in a forest of doubt and despair.

And I wondered why Jesus had left me out there?

My mind was disturbed with confusion and doubt;

O why doesn’t someone reveal the way out!

O Jesus, I need You to lead me today.

You must travel beside me and guide me all the way.

 There’s never a time I can go it alone;

But as You stay with me, and walk with me, we’ll safely reach home!

There are days when I pray for those trials to cease.

But it seems that The Lord only brings brief release.

And each time that I feel delivered from pain,

The confusing spirit is with me again.

O Jesus, I need You to lead me today.

You must travel beside me and guide me alway.

There’s never a time I can go it alone;

But as You stay with me, and walk with me, we’ll safely reach home!

God Always Sees The Best in me…

 I was lost… but God saw the best in me,                  

While shackled to my sin.

He viewed me on the MOUNTAIN–TOP;

Restored and healed within.                             Psalm 23: 3

I knew I could not rise above

The bitterness in my heart—

Filled to the brim with selfishness;

My world was lonely and dark.

A Christian friend exposed my plight,

By sharing one brief thing…

“David was viewed as a mere shepherd boy.

But God saw in him, a KING!”                                        1 Samuel 16: 10-12

Quickly I saw God’s view of my life;

 I must ask for His power in me.

He could lift me up from this quicksand of sin;        Psalm 40: 2

On the mountain-top I would be!

So my message is to all who will hear—

I’ll tell of His mighty POWER.

He has swept all the darkness of sin away;

Now He strengthens me ev’ry hour!                      Isaiah 41: 10
